Yoimiya is a new playable character during the second half of Genshin Impact‘s Version 2.0 update, and there are plenty of character builds for those who want her full potential. She will be featured as a promotional character on the Tapestry of Golden Flames Banner. For players lucky enough to pull her, here are the best Artifacts and weapons for Yoimiya.
Yoimiya is a 5-star Pyro character who uses a bow in combat. Her focus on Normal and Charged attacks in battle makes her a great candidate for a DPS build. Yoimiya is comparable to many other Pyro characters in Genshin Impact, but she also offers many unique abilities. If players are looking for a reliable main damage dealer, then Yoimiya may be a great option.
Yoimiya can easily infuse Pyro to enemies with her attacks. Doing so allows her to trigger Elemental Reactions such as Melt, Overload, and Vaporize in battle. As the main DPS within a team, players will want to raise Yoimiya’s ATK and Pyro stats in order to increase the total damage she can deal. Equipping the right weapon and Artifacts will be important in maximizing Yoimiya’s Talents in battle.
The best Artifacts in Genshin Impact for Yoimiya are the Shimenawa’s Reminiscence set. Equipping two pieces will give Yoimiya an 18% ATK bonus, which is helpful for DPS characters. With four Shimenawa’s Reminiscence pieces equipped, she will receive a buff that will increase Normal, Charged, and Plunging attack damage by 50% for 10 seconds when using an Elemental Skill. However, there is a drawback to using a four-piece Shimenawa’s Reminiscence set. The character will lose 15 Energy when activating an Elemental Skill, which could hinder using an Elemental Burst. If this becomes a problem, gamers can equip a 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flames set instead, increasing Yoimiya’s Pyro damage.
The best bow for Yoimiya is the Thundering Pulse, a new weapon introduced in Genshin Impact‘s 2.0 update. The bow increases the user’s ATK by 20% and will further buff Normal attacks based on the number of Thunder Emblems that are stacked. With one Thunder Emblem, Normal attacks will increase by 12%. Two stacks will offer a 24% buff and at a maximum of three stacks, a 40% boost will be given. The Thundering Pulse will also offer a max Base ATK boost of 608 and a 66.2% increase for CRIT DMG. Acquiring a 5-star weapon may be challenging for players, therefore 4-star bows that increase Yoimiya’s ATK like the Rust or Prototype Crescent are good alternatives.
As Genshin Impact receives more updates, many powerful weapons and Artifacts will be introduced, and one of the most fun aspects of the free-to-play RPG is creating different builds for a character. Yoimiya can be a great Pyro damage dealer for players, and with the right weapons and Artifacts equipped, she can be a strong asset within a team.
